    Single rad zone - flow issues

    Hi All. Ive got a few issues with my recently installed heating system. The plumber that fitted it did a good enough job of running pipes and installing rads, but i have issues with noise, trapped air and rads heating up slowly, and the boiler was left in defaults for all settings. He also...

    Gas pipe proximity to consumer unit

    I'll just get the pipe moved. My concern was in the event if a CU fire my house disappears from existence. A bit of electrical tape isn't going to help me much there.

    Gas pipe proximity to consumer unit

    No drama. I'll ask the guy back tomorrow. Probably an hour job to move it. Interesting that I had an electrician out as well the week after the pipe was put in and they did a load of work on the CU. Didn't mention the pipe. Although I guess they only care about their regs.

    Gas pipe proximity to consumer unit

    Clearly a professional and a certificate that they are one is no guarantee that your installation is safe.

    Gas pipe proximity to consumer unit

    Is this an issue? Gap is about 6cm. Should the plumber have installed the gas pipe this way and should I ask them to reroute it next time they are here? There are other potential routes and the installation is 4 months old. It just dawned on me that this might not be great in the event of a CU...

    Boiler firing when cold taps turned off

    You might just have cracked it for me. Not a lot came out (maybe 2 seconds), but it seems to have stopped the issue as far as I can tell. Will monitor it. It quite tricky to tell as the worst tap is the furtherst from to boiler so it's tricky to hear it.

    Boiler firing when cold taps turned off

    Yeah there is a capped pipe in the airing cupboard. I know there are two capped in the kitchen wall as well, hot and cold. Can't get to those. I could have the airing cupboard one ripped out when we have the bathroom done.

    Boiler firing when cold taps turned off

    We recently had our heating and water system replaced with a combi. One thing that's really frustrating and probably costing us money, the boiler fires every time a cold tap, toilet or appliance is closed. This also seems to cause a build up of pressure in the hot taps. We have fairly high flow...

    Asbestos or cement board

    I have what looks like asbestos on my garage ceiling. Construction was 1967. Flat roof, with nothing above. See pic attached. I've had various trades in for various things. Options ranging from, that's cement board, to that's asbestos, to that's asbestos but not the dangerous stuff. I need...

    Expanding foam on copper heating pipes

    Morning. I just had my single pipe system replaced with all new pipes and rads. We have 4x chases to deal with on external walls. 2 drops from upstairs and 2 across walls to rad locations. The chases are not deep enough to put pipe lagging on the pipes. I know i need some protection before...

    Bathroom Downlights 12v or 240v?

    All in the ceiling void. It's a cold flat roof with celotex if that makes a difference (yeah I know it probably shouldn't have downlights in a cold roof but I didn't do it)

    Cold water tank overflow since drain down

    My thoughts exactly. Visually I was thinking of 50x2l bottles of water and thinking no chance the tiny f+e tank in my loft is anywhere close. Now I see the comment said system not tank!

    Cold water tank overflow since drain down

    I might be going nuts but there is no way the tank i have holds 100l. More like 20l

    Must be it thanks. Best way to get out the excess...open the drain down valve for a minute?
